Sunburst Oranges Celebrates “Housewives Day”

Most people don’t know that every November third is National Housewives day. First everyone at Sunburst Oranges want to tip our hat to all of those that are out there as the backbone of family life the “Housewife.”

No matter how hard we looked, how much research we did, we did not find the originator of this special day. Nor, did we find any factual information about the start or creation of the celebration..

We suspect this day was created by a housewife. By their very nature, housewives tend to stay out of the spotlight. If a housewife indeed created this day, it would be typical of her not to take credit. The other likely creator, is a husband. In this event, he simply wants to tell the world how lucky he is to have her.

Housewife Day recognizes the importance of stay at home wives and moms. Also referred to as "Retro" Housewife Day. These wonderful, caring creatures, build and enrich strong family environments. They help to instill family values and good character.

Housewife is an old term. It hails back to the days when one income could support the family in a manner of comfort. It was also a time when women did not have equal rights. While these days are long gone, women views of working or staying at home, fall on both sides of the fence. The decision to be a "housewife", or stay at home mom, is still preferred by many. Unfortunately, income needs often necessitate going to work.

Today, we celebrate and thank all of the ladies who choose to stay home and tend to the house and family!

How will you celebrate this special day? I will celebrate this day, by honoring all of our beloved wives, and thanking them for staying home for the family during the child rearing years. Without a doubt, our children grew up much better for it. And, many benefited by the many sacrifices the housewife made by staying home.

Today a new term we are seeing is an Available Mom. Availability also doesn't mean that Mom is so focused on the needs of her family that she cannot take care of her own physical and emotional needs. Mom may be the site manager, but even a site manager has to step away from the job occasionally and take some time off. Who takes care of Mom? Mom needs to know and practice the art of self-care.

Moms who do all of the above and still find a way to work for the family deserve a special nod on this day as well.

For those who want to know these kinds of things the Flower of the Day is Lavender.
